Question about ViewSonic VX2235WM Monitor
If the monitor comes on and displays a message like "no input signal" or something similar, it's working properly but there is nothing coming from the computer. People often think that the computer is working and the monitor is at fault, when in fact the computer isn't starting up.
When you turn on the computer, do you hear the normal sounds of the power supply fan running and the hard drive spinning? Most computers will give a beep when they turn on and the motherboard finishes some startup checks. Do you hear that? Do you ever hear the normal startup sounds that mean Windows is actually running?
If you are convinced the computer is starting and booting into Windows, I would suggest you borrow a known good monitor to use as a test. If it works, that obviously means yours is bad. In most cases there's nothing you can do to repair a monitor yourself beyond checking for loose connections, bent pins in the signal cable plug, or a damaged cable.
If a known good monitor still has no image, the computer is at fault. Either the video card or integrated video isn't working, or the computer isn't actually starting up. In any case, that's where you would need to start looking for the cause.
Hope this helps you along the way to solving the problem. Thanks fo using Fixya!
